Phonics Screening Check

 

Year 1 Phonics Screening Check

It is that time of the year again where all Year 1 students in government schools will undertake the phonics screening check. Year 1 teachers will be undertaking these checks with their students this week on Wednesday 22nd August.

Phonics is vital in learning to read. Phonics is the relationship between letters and sounds. The phonics screening check is a short, simple assessment that tells teachers how students are progressing in phonics. It takes only 5–7 minutes and is carried out by classroom teachers with each student individually. Teachers then analyse the results and, if necessary, plan for any additional support that students might require.

Further information for parents/carers, families and the general community is attached below.
